Our Fall Dinner was a Big Success. This year we thank the American Legion Post #15 in Palmer Alaska for putting on a fantastic dinner and great place to meet and David for organizing this event. We had MG Hummel, the Adjutant General of the Army National Guard of Alaska, who spoke to us about growing up with a father who served three tours in Vietnam. We were also honored to have Mr Pasert Lee, the Alaska Hmong Laos Veterans and Community Leader. He had some great pictures of pilot rescues in Vietnam! Linda Kau  was there with the Quilts of Valor to honor John Poirrier and Dan Sentz with their Quilt. Always very special.
